Hotel Kelleran, West Roykton street. It was the last Thursday of December, and quite a little throng of fashionable Ieople had assembled at the Hotel Kel lernn in response to this card. Estella Blodgett had .always been called a beauty, -Why, was not so easy to say, for, as she herself once candidly remarked, When yon come to look' at me, I'm not so very protty in fact, no prettier than other people." Thia was quite true. Beauty often consists in a certain nameless charm; brightness, un expectedness, tact, and sweetness com bined, and these Estella ha&ryflTor the rest, there were dark hair andeyea, a clear, brilliant skin, a dimple, a white slender hand; but, as I said, she "yr as 'no jrettier than American girls are apt' to be, only people persisted ' in thinking her so. She 'wore these unmerited laurels gracefully enough; success did u ox, spoil ner; ner list oi mends num bered a. many women as men, which is always a test to the qualities of a beauty. But never, people agreed, had Estella Blodgett been sweeter, more unaffectedly cordial and fascinating, than was Estella Alsop that afternoon as she glided about her pretty new. -rooms, welcoming, greeting, making every one feel at home. 'How happy she looks!" observed Mrs. Dalrymple. - -x Well, who wouldn't be happy with tho Uveliest French trousseau that ever was, and such a nice husband as hers?" asked Constance Ferris. " ' Two or three people laughed at the unconscious ' warmth of Constance's tone. '.'"' For my part," puftn Alice Ordway, I never could quite see that James Alsop was so charming. He shuts me right up; I don't get on with him at all. Estella used toioel so too, and I never understood how she came to like him at tho lost." ' Ah, you never tried him in an ele vator," said Mrs. Dalrymple, looking funny. In au elevator! What do you mean?" " " Oh, thereby hangs a tale; you know, of course, that James is a professor, arid excessively wise apd learned?" ' "Yes; I know so much." I usod to be dreadfully afraid of him," went on ; Estella, s with a little laugh. "He isn't a society man at all, ", and doesn't know how to get on with young ladies. Ho used to talk to me sometimes at parties, but I was always stiff and silent. He made me feel shy and ignorant and light-minded some how, tho only man that ever did, and I quite thought that I disliked him. ' In fact, I used to say so. Several of the girls felt the same. "Tho Fey tons lived iu these rooms last winter. They were lovely people, gny and kind, always giving the pleas antest little, parties. S Well, they were going to have a little dinner on Mrs. bound for the first story or the second, I remarked, Goodvning, Mr. Alsop. Are we en route lor Mr. Peyton s ?' .

When it first stopped we thought it som-. mistake, and waited patiently, but after a minute James crrew -aneasv, He twitched the rope, but all to no pur pose; then he began to call; hoping somebody below would hear us, " We were so near the Peyton' floor that we could see the Lights shining through the glazed door at tol : The elevator had an open-work roof criss cross, you know, with large holes ? be tween the 'criss-crossirWs.

The recent report of the Massachusetts State board of health for 1874 presents, in one bfjts supplementary papers, some facts which are interesting because of their significant bearing upon the im portant question of the health of towns. The death rate for 1872 in Massachusetts was 2 272-1000 per cent.-, or one to every forty-tour , persona! f Although Massa chusetts possesses a 'most 1 healthy cli mate, the death rate is considered as very high. The report gives some interesting figures, which go to show that the death rate in closely populated cities is greater than in those of smaller population Is truef For iiistance ifr 1872 the death rate in the city of New" York, was 1 32.6 per thousand, while in Newark it was almost the same 31.6 only one in' a thousand less. Now, the difference in density of population between New York andr pfewark is almost as great as it can be between two "large towns. The Bame remark applies to Hoboken, wher the death rate was even somewhat greater than it was in New York, 32.9 per thou sand. In New Orleans, which is densely populated, and which is subject to yellow fever, the deakk rate wJepian that of New York 30.6 per thousand; while in Memphis, which is not densely popu lated, and where yellow fever is not endemic, the rate reached the exception ally; high iBgnre of 46. 6 per thousand. These facts would seem to showj that we are not yet sufficiently advanced in sanitary science to form a well-founded conclusion as to the effect of density mere density of population upon the" health of the human race. But as to one point, all facts, all reason, all prob ability, point to one conclusion ; and that is that sicknessfirjddeath-andlin parti cular, typhoid diseases" and diseases"! of the zymotic type are connected directly with the presence ajj-the gaoes of decom- positiotf Pure water fevers .health, but it nas Deen lounu tnat its introaucuon into cities has not diminished the death rate in any very striking flegTe. ! But the Jremotal eu maaseAfif jflecoxaposing matter is always followed by a diminished death rate. Dr. Derby, in his report on no wickedness to which he is not equal. : His hypocrisy then greatly helps him to succeed, i I have seen him when he looked the- perfect ; picture of meekness and humility ; when it seemed that even Moses himself must defer to him in those crowning virtues. ' Yet if Moses or any other patriarch had ven tured to approach him without a tribute of corn, the mule would have kicked him into the remotest antiquity. I have seen him deceive a wagonmaster himself, pre tending that he could not go a step farther, Taut the moment he was released from harness, bounding off as fresh and lively as a colt. . 7 The depraved mule rejoices in his heart if he can make some one miserable. It is a trait for which in the West they have a specific term. ' They call it ' pure cussedness.". When a mule devotes his whole, life to illustrating this idea, he finds a , thousand ; opportunties, and achieves a i remarkable success.- It is this instinct which prompts - him to en courage the attentions of his driver for a year or two, just for the sake of getting a good chance lo kickjua brains out : It isthis which .leads -him to stand still when ' other 'people ' wonid be better pleased if he would go. It is this which often jdecittW;hiirjwleti he really does start, to send his rider on ahead of him. Perhaps, too it is this spirit that gives the . mule his strange idea of justice, which seems to; be to visit npon others the afflictions which he suffers himself . Thus it is said that if. a bad lot of mules are in line, and you' kick one of '; them violently, instead of retaliating on the one who kicked him, he simply kicks the mule behind him. The second mule passes, the kick o the thirds hj to the fourth, and so on till the' primary ven geance has gone the whole length of the lineleaving the lost nule unjustified. Perhaps i is only an illustration of the principle that misery loves oompany; ' has made her' money by . successful speculations and by her.life4ong habit of saving. 1- or years she has lived at a boarding-house in -Baltimore, seeing very little company. Her costume is ancient, and there is nothing about hex appearance that suggests the mrvelous beauty that led captive the heart of Je rome Bonaparte. Her eyes alone retain some of the brightness of former days. For forty years Madame Bonaparte kept a diary, in which she recorded her views and observations of European and American society. Some of her re marks are severely sarcastic. ' A well known Boston publishing ' house, it is said, recently offered ten thousand dol lars for Madame refused to sell them at any price, and has committed them to the 000,000. ' Adding this to the retail cost of the spirituous liquors consumed there is a total of $322,000,000. And wines, foreign and. domestic, are. not included in these statistics.
